Alea Jacta Est

I got up earlyish for me today, because I had an appointment to meet with a salesman for the new module I've been considering.  It was interesting, though it pointed out why I avoid a lot of these sales pitches:  The vast majority was a rehash of stuff I already knew from the website.  But still, managed to ask a couple of tough questions that he should get back to me on eventually...

Then off to Alameda.  First time there since before the NY trip.  A nice, refreshing, relaxed time, until it came out that I still hadn't served notice to "She".  A long discussion erupted over whether the right description of me was "schmuck" or "putz".  I pointed out I didn't want to interrupt this semester...

So they wrote up a notice that tells her to get out by June 1st - a week after finals - then had me sign it.  It's hidden somewhere around their house, pending mailing.

So now I get to wait for the inevitable eruption from Chaos Girl.  Joy.  I hear Bermuda's nice this time of year.

More Simplified Social Commentary

I happened to run across this gem of observation on the reasons why American high school is such a nightmare to anyone with half a brain.

I think he has a number of good insights, though I believe he skims over some of the biological differences - a number of nerds actually have a mild form of autism called Asperger's Syndrome, a large symptom of which is social awkwardness.
